||The most common problem that every
support staff has is getting the needed information to decipher a problem and offer the
correct solution. We need to be able to duplicate most problems on our own computers in
order to offer any helpful information. This requires that you be prepared to give us complete
and detailed information about what you are experiencing, so we can take it down
and render assistance.
If you give us vague
information, we will be delayed in answering you because we will have to ask numerous
questions in order to determine how to best help you.
What to have Ready:
- Your Control Number or Serial Number. We may not
need it if you are listed on our computer, but have it ready just in case.
- The number and all text from any error
message. This includes the text in the center and on the title bar of any error message

error message(s), if any. If there were no error messages, then exactly what you

- If you are getting an Access Violation, make sure to restart your computer and try again before calling support. Shut down your computer, and then turn it on again. Some Windows DLL libraries, and even some parts of Windows
itself, can have problems if a program failure is not followed by a reboot.
* All free product support is offered solely as an accommodation, and our support policies may change at any time without notice, liability or obligation on our part. No product sale is contingent upon the provision of any level of product support. Nothing on this page may be construed to commit us to provide any level of product support at any time, and the text of your license agreement
shall always control. We reserve the right to give first priority and attention to paying support customers.
** The fact that we may charge for a support incident does not mean that you are entitled to receive a response or an effective solution within a specific period of time, or that a solution is guaranteed. It simply means that we will use our best efforts
to solve your problem, and will in good faith continue to work on a problem until it is solved, or it is evident that the problem cannot be solved. For your part, you agree to follow our instructions completely and accurately without objection. The lack of a solution within a certain time frame is no grounds to refund the transaction. This is the normal practice within the software industry.
